Abolish Income Taxes !!!!!

The income tax is indirectly responsible for the majority of problems America faces today. In a country as rich as ours, there should not be any poverty; no homelessness; no unemployment. Yet, the rich continue to get richer and the poor continue to get poorer.

1998 State Of The Union:

35.7 million citizens live in poverty.
760,000 men, women and children are homeless.
3,000,000 bankruptcy fillings in last 3 years.

The income tax has lost the war on poverty!!!!!

Income taxes are Capitation (direct) taxes. The Constitution of the United States says in Article 1, Section 2, Clause 3 "...direct taxes shall be apportioned among the several states". It also says in Article 1, Section 9, Clause 4 "No capitation, or other direct, tax shall be laid, unless in proportion to the census or enumeration herein before directed to be taken."

Replace Income Taxes With "The Barber Plan"

Part A - Fee on Transfers

     Part A should do it.  Or at least half of the budget.
     If not, then we implement Part B.

Part B - Apportioned PPR

B1. The federal government determines fiscal budgeted
    tax requirements. 

B2. People and businesses give voluntarily to the State
    government anonymously to reduce apportioned tax
    requirement to the several States. 

B3. The federal tax liability balance is apportioned
    among the several States.
